Stopped at Stronachlachar Pier Tea Room midway on a fabulous cycling tour of the national park. Gorgeous setting with the famous and historic Walter Scott just leaving the pier. Lunch options are varied and all looked delicious. I had a great sandwich on the best "Gluten Free" roll that I have ever tasted. Other gluten free options can be found.... More

I guess you can say I'm a bit of a regular to the Pier. As a bicycle tour guide, I bring groups of cyclists from all over world to Loch Katrine in the Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park, with no trip ending without a visit to the Pier Cafe. From my first visit to the cafe several year ago,... More

Sweet place to stop for a breather and a coffee. Home made cakes galore on offer. Great view of the loch. Family run and the better for it. Great service. You will want to take Phoebe ( the dog ) home with you.

This is a good place to stop for tea, coffee, cakes and sandwiches. Right on the side of Loch Katrine, the steamer stops here. Plenty of parking and very scenic - well worth the drive.

For all sorts of reasons we found the Pier Tearooms to be just what we needed. If you are a cyclist or walker this is a great place to get your refreshment ... and such good quality too. The conservatory is a welcome respite from the wind or rain. But the views are sublime. Sit outside and watch the world... More

The scones we had were delicious and staff were very pleasant . For years we have walked here so it was lovely to now have a place to have a seat... More

Its the over end of Loch Katrine and only one road to the Pier tearoom if you're driving but will worth the journey when you get to the only T- Junction turn right!. The views alone is worth the trip, good friendly service and food

We've visited once a year for over 15 years and it never fails to impress. They say you can't improve on perfection but the addition of the conservatory giving amazing views across the loch, did just that. The food is not complicated but fresh, delicious and we'll priced considering the distance it must be from the nearest suppliers. The staff... More
